    Rosean WiP

    Thought I'd share with you some Rosean WiP from a painting I have been working on for about 3 month.

    Started by taking these two photos mid summer for use as reference later on. June 2007.

    Goal was to try and avoid my usual 1:1 photo-ref-copy method. So I decided to do a pencil sketch in real life first. I still ref'd from photo (since the flower was dead and gone at that time). This is a scan of the original 10x15 cm sketch. October 2007.

    Did a quick colour test of the scanned pencil sketch. Added a layer with Hard Light merge method. Then added the colour quickly using crayons.

    My goal from the start was to do the underpaint in grayscale and add colour using merge modes later on. First leaf took quite some time. Had trouble to decide the range of grays I was to use how black/white should I do it?

    Went over the entire head of the flower quickly with grays to get an idea of the whole.

    Start of December I started work on the colour layers. The merge mode is all the time Overlay with 50-70% opacity.
